"RoboCop 3" is a
science fictionfilm, released in 1993, set in the near future in a dystopian metropolitan Detroit, Michigan, and filmed in Atlanta, Georgia. Most of the abandoned buildings seen in the film were slated for demolition to make way for facilities for the 1996 Olympics. It is the sequelto the 1990 film " RoboCop 2".
The film was directed by
Fred Dekker, a director primarily known for cult horror films. Popular graphic novelist, Frank Miller, returned to write the screenplay for the film. Major themes of the plot were taken from the Miller's original (rejected) draft of Robocop 2. The star of the previous films, Peter Weller, did not reprise the role (due to scheduling conflicts with "Naked Lunch", as well as being tired of reprising his role due to how cumbersome and exhausting it was to wear the suit) and thus it was left up to Robert John Burketo play the cyborgcharacter. The RoboCop suit worn in the movie was originally built for "RoboCop 2" (1990). Since Robert John Burke is taller than Peter Weller, he complained that wearing it was painful after a short time.Fact|date=March 2008 Other important casting changes had to be made for the third film. The actor who played the OCP CEOfrom the previous two films, Dan O'Herlihy, and his successor are both absent from this film.
Another pre-production problem with the film was pressure from media watchdog organizations for the film to be rated PG-13;Fact|date=March 2008 the first two films had been rated R. Hence the profanity, graphic violence, mature sexual content, and references to illicit drugs and prostitution all had to be reduced or taken out altogether. The gritty environment of the first two films was severely diluted.
"RoboCop 3" was rushed into production soon after "
RoboCop 2" was complete. Although completed in 1991, "RoboCop 3" would languish on the shelf until 1993 as Orion Pictureswent through bankruptcy and was bought out. "RoboCop 3" earned $4.3 million on its opening weekend, ending its run with $10.6 million domestically, far short of recouping its estimated $22 million production budget.
The main plot of "RoboCop 3" involves RoboCop finding a new family, as he has apparently given up hope of seeing his wife or son again. He finds an extended family in the form of an
orphanedlittle Japanese American girl (her parents had died when they were escaping), an underground paramilitaryresistance of underprivilegedurban families that OCP wants to relocate in order to build Delta City, and one of the original scientistsfrom the first two films that built and operated on him.
Meanwhile, OCP is on the verge of
bankruptcy, and Detroit law enforcement is gradually superseded by OCP's brutal mercenary security force, the Rehabs, under Commander Paul McDaggett. The Delta City dream of the former CEOand "Old Man" lives on through the help of a Japanese Zaibatsu, the Kanemitsu Corporation, who bought a controlling stake in OCP. Kanemitsu is prepared to use its own ninjarobots (called "Otomo") to overcome the resistance of the defenders of the impoverishedneighborhood. When RoboCop tries to defend unarmed civilians from the Rehabs, his longtime partner, Anne Lewis, is killed by McDaggett, and RoboCop joins the resistance.
Eventually, RoboCop defeats the three
Japanese robots, the evil McDaggett, and enlists the aid of the DetroitCity police departmentto stop the development and thus save the blue collarurban neighborhoodfrom invasionwhile OCP collapses into bankruptcy.

MGM posted a piece of a
press releasefrom MGM Studios that lists a bunch of potential upcoming projects listing a possible remake of " RoboCop" or a fourth film in its list of upcoming films, others being " Quantum of Solace", " The Pink Panther Deux", and " The Hobbit". Ed Neumeier and Paul Verhoeven have pitched around ideas for one, says producer Jon Davison: "There's been discussions at Screen Gemsabout a "RoboCop" picture ever since negotiations began to acquire MGM several years ago. As yet no writer has been hired but things are inching forward in that direction".fact|date=April 2008
